I'm starting a small music streaming service. And one of the bands I was talking to said that they do not own the licenses to their music. But would like to be on the platform.

My father is the one who bought the car, he is now in Venezuela. I am living here in the US. We have the money that is due, however because I am not on the title or contract they will not allow me to pick up the car. My father has no way of being here to pick up the car himself. Is it a lost cause?
Speak to the party holding the car about obtaining an affidavit from your father that gives you authority to retrieve the car for him. You can do this without consulate. Use instead a remote Virginia online Notary.
My fiancé and I got a vehicle together (both co-buyers on the loan). We ended up not being able to make the payments and we’re going to voluntarily give it back to the bank. It was this big ordeal and the bank wasn’t letting me set up a time for someone to either come pick it up or for me to... Read more »
Nothing goes away. You should inform the bank about this so that it can take any action it deems necessary for them to track down the vehicle and take possession of it. If the vehicle is repossessed, it will be sold at auction and the proceeds applied to your loan balance. However, there is no...Read more »

Probably not. Do you really think a guy with a severe drug problem.who runs a roach motel is going to have 2 grand laying around? You should have consulted a.lawyer 3 years ago. Even so, if you think you have a case, you should consult a lawyer, but be prepared to be charged a hefty fee upfront if...Read more »

A Florida attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL matter, contracts do contain clauses that dictate how disputes will be resolved. Some of these stipulate that arbitration will be used as a forum instead of civil court. I'm not certain if your clause...Read more »
Do we need to make a disclaimer for both outgoing and incoming calls? or let the person know they're on a recorded line during outgoing phone calls? or both? If so, Is there a specific disclaimer that is best for legality purposes?

She took a loan out from a high interest loan company. She refuses to give me any details. The loan payback is now up to &10,000. She also put her car up as collateral. They have taken advantage of her disability. We live in Florida. What are the ADA laws against this?
The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) has nothing to do with your wife's apparent mental condition. Nor am I aware of any other federal or state law that could help you stop your wife's uncontrollable behavior.
I’ve researched and seems the format I am using wasn’t registered previously “as I have listed” and have processed the necessary paperwork to register at the state level and per fictitious name guidelines as well what can I do if they persist?
Your inquiry is a bit vague as to whether your corporate name and/or fictitious name are registered with the Fla. Division of Corporations exactly as you intended. That is - does the name appearing on Sunbiz.org match the name you are using? Only names that are registered are protected - that...Read more »
